Abstract

Satellite sea surface temperature (SST) observations from Infrared radiometers (AVHRR, MODIS) and a microwave radiometer (AMSR-E) are objectively merged to generate the new generation SST product (NGSST-O Ver.1.0). The product Is a quality-controlled, cloud-free, high-spatial resolution (0.05 degree-grided), wide-covering (13-63N, 116-166E), and daily SST digital map. The real-time production and distribution of the NGSST-O has started from September 2003 as a part of the GODAE High Resolution Sea Surface Temperature Pilot Project To examine the accuracy of the NGSST-O product, the NGSST-O SST Is compared with the ln-stu SST that Is obtained by the buoys drifting In the analyzed area for July 2002 to October 2004. The match-ups of 396,254 points show that the bias of the NGSST-O Is -0.15 K against the buoy observations and the rms error, 0.85 K.
